Did Peter Jackson try too hard with his King Kong movie? Is his Director’s cut worse than the theatrical cut? Klayton Fioriti (also host of Dragoncurve ) Joins me to answer this question about a movie we love.
Peter Jackson’s expansive remake of the 1933 classic follows director Carl Denham (Jack Black) and his crew on a journey from New York City to the ominous Skull Island to film a new movie. Accompanying him are playwright Jack Driscoll (Adrien Brody) and actress Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts), who is whisked away by the monstrous ape, Kong, after they reach the island. The crew encounters dinosaurs and other creatures as they race to rescue Ann, while the actress forms a bond with her simian captor.
